Sunday Matters: Someone is About to Turn 21

Sunday Matters

It’s super hard to believe but this guy, the boy, the lad, the college kid, is turning 21 this Wednesday. In September he moves away to college to complete his B.A. He is counting down the days. I know you are all wondering how I am possibly old enough to have a child this age. Right? You are wondering?

Right Now:

Trying to decide how we will spend the day. Yesterday we did the dreaded back-to-school shopping. Crowds and I do not mix. So today, I feel like I need a little break. Maybe some time outside.

This Week:

My son is heading out of town to celebrate his birthday with friends but we will be celebrating on Saturday with a nice dinner out. I hope to grab pics.

Nothing this week except rehearsals for Little Shop. Now that I freed my Tuesdays up, I need to start doing what I have been trying to do for so long. Write a book.

Reading:

I finished The Summer Demands by Deborah Shapiro and really loved it. I will get the review posted soon.

I also finished and reviewed I’ll Be Gone in the Dark.

Now that I finished those two I am back to The Scent Keeper.

Watching:

I stumbled upon Drunk History and I love it. It’s especially funny after I did all that history reading to help my daughter with her class. Somehow I never pictured Lincoln as a nerd. Who knew?

New Things I’ve Tried:

I’ve tried a few new things this week but I can’t remember what they were. Seriously.

Grateful for:

Great smelling candles. It’s kind of a dumb thing to list but I love candles. They really cheer me up and it doesn’t matter what season I am in because there is a candle for every season. My fave are the Capri Blue Volcano candles from Anthropologie.

My question for you this week? Were you a backpack kind of kid or a binder kind of kid? I always had a backpack but my daughter likes binders but the stuff flies everywhere.

Sunday Matters: What Month Is It?

Sunday Matters

My brain thinks it’s June. I have been dating my checks wrong and flipping to the wrong month in my planner. June was very mild for us so I’m sure that helped confuse me. But can the year fly by any faster? I don’t think so. It has been SO pretty out, though. Warm days and cool evenings. Perfect.

Right Now:

Not much going in this morning. Later, there is a movie night scheduled at church so I will be going to that.

Later, I might flip through a few cookbooks for meal inspiration. I’m so tired of making the same old stuff over and over again.

This Week:

This week should be good. The Child Development class my daughter is taking at the college ends this week. And production week for Little Shop is still a week off so we will have a little break before that.

Oh, and I almost forgot about a book discussion I am hosting mid-week for I’ll Be Gone In the Dark.

Reading:

I’ve got my summer list of books to get to but I want something really juicy. Have’t decided what though.

Watching:

I am ready discuss Stranger Things if anyone wants to!

New Things I’ve Tried:

Every now and then my skin breaks out. Usually if I have eaten gluten by accident. Well, my daughter had a sample of Glam Glow Supermud and it healed what I had overnight. No joke. I have tried it three times now and it’s worked overnight in each case. A dab overnight. Boom. Healed the next day.

This is not a sponsored post but when I find things that work I like to share them. It’s pricey but such a small amount is used. I bet it would last a long time.

Grateful for:

SO darn happy that this one class ends this week.

What are you up to today? How’s the week look for you?
